HIST081 HM - Science and Technology in the Early Modern World

Credit(s): 3

Instructor(s): Hamilton

Description: We will read works of natural philosophy from the 16th and 17th centuries, including selections by Vesalius, Copernicus, Galileo, Boyle, and Newton, individuals who have often been cast as crucial contributors to “The Scientific Revolution.” Engaging with historians who debate the merits of this term, we will ask whether it is possible to unite these figures and the changes they represent into one coherent intellectual and social movement.
